These fantasies echo the series “Natures Mortes – Réalités”, in which the artist transforms waste discharged from the sea into small sculptures with post-apocalyptic overtones. This time, white shells from a Breton beach are adorned with golden pearls and elements extracted from the crowns of the newlyweds, formerly enclosed under globes of glasses – the same ones used in the Lungs of Oceans series. The artist assembles two forms here, one drawn by the hand of man, the other by nature, in a union that would try to signify their possible symbiosis, their fantasized cohabitation. Small treasures of just a few centimeters, these hybrids are all talismans to which Aude Bourgine gives a protective and saving role.
